    what can i use to get these jap bettles off my flowers i live in michigan n they are just horible this year havent seen any grubs just adults

    • Julie,

      Most insecticides will effectively control feeding adult Japanese beetles, however among the best choices are Up Star Gold and Xytect. Both products can be applied to the leaves of your shrub and will provide about 30 days of control. Often times more than one application is required to maintain control through out the life span of Japanese beetles. Up Star Gold is a great option if you are seeing them now, but Xytect can be applied to the soil for prevention next year.

    What can I use to kill jumping gall wasps. I have oak trees. The “seeds” are all over my lawn and driveway. Ants are attracted to them. I fear a wasp infestation and we already are battling them. I realize they are stingless wasps, but I am also concerned about the damage to the trees. Will Sevin kill the jumping galls and the larvae inside? Am I too late?
    Thank you! Paula

    • Paula,

      You are a bit too late for optimal control. Early spring sprays will be the most effective in controlling jumping oak gall. Carbaryl, Tengard and Up Star Gold are all good choices for this pest. Remember, though that if you have a large tree treatment will be tricky. You have to spray the entire tree from top to bottom to keep the population at bay. If your tree is small, treatment can be effective though!

    We have a bad infestation tussocks moth in our fir and spruce trees. We have 10 acres of trees so we are only going to treat the high value trees. These trees are over 90 feet tall. What is the application rate and since the product is systemic can the product work in the upper part of the tree? It will very difficult to apply the product to the top of these trees.

    • The Tree Geek says:

      Hi Charlie,

      Carbaryl is not a systemic, so you would need to spray the foliage for the best effect. If you have large trees I would recommend a product called Lepitect. It needs to be injected into the soil, but it will move throughout the tree and will last for about a month.
